For the 50th anniversary of UHasselt we wanted to bring together educators, researchers and scientific educational experts to talk about higher education with impact. Our Educational Conference was a platform for innovative thinking about the role of higher education in driving impact and solving complex societal challenges. We exploref new ideas and approaches to higher education that create a meaningful change. 


Get ready to immerse yourself in a transformative conference that will delve into the most pressing issues of higher education! This conference will focus on four major themes: Civic Higher Education, Inclusive Higher Education, Student-Centered Higher Education, and Future-Proof Higher Education. We aim to provide a thorough and thought-provoking exploration of the multifaceted aspects of higher education.

Through Civic Higher Education (1), we'll explore the essential role of higher education in promoting civic engagement and social responsibility, diving into topics such as community engaged learning and community service learning. Inclusive Higher Education (2) will challenge us to create a more equitable, inclusive, and accessible higher education system for all students, regardless of their background or circumstances. We'll explore topics such as diversity and inclusion, access to education, and support for underrepresented groups.

With Student-Centered Higher Education (3), we'll center the needs and experiences of students in the learning process, exploring innovative approaches to student-led learning, personalized education, and co-creation of knowledge and skills. Finally, through Future-Proof Higher Education (4), we'll tackle the ever-evolving demands of the future and prepare students with essential 21st century skills, new technologies, sustainability, and the development of a global knowledge economy.

This conference promises to provide a comprehensive and profound examination of the current state of higher education and its impact on society. Join us for an experience that will inspire, challenge, and transform your understanding of higher education.
